It's our pleasure to present and share with the world the extraordinary beauty of the country in which we are born.
To visit us here where the mountains meet the sea and where at the gates of the Kotor Bay travelers are still greeted by the wild beauty of the Mediterranean. We will share with you ideas and events, hidden beauties, and secrets of small places where our "Casas" are tucked away.
We would like to convey to you our charm and energy, mornings bathed in the sun and evenings under the blue moonlight.
Welcome to our adorable Montenegro and Kotor Bay
Casa Epico – the magic of the Mediterranean at home
At a time when holidays at home are truly the best and the safest option, Casa del Mare brings to your doorstep the most beautiful of the Mediterranean.
In Casa del Mare, innovation is high on the list of priorities. Our project Casa Epico, which we are implementing in collaboration with the Michelin-star chef Eros Picco is one of those.
For the first time last summer we had the opportunity to present to all our guests a real Michelin-star culinary experience. This year together with Eros we are starting a years-long project of the popup restaurant Casa Epico, combining the best of our two brands as well as the Mediterranean Boka-way.
Home of the Mediterranean flavors "Casa Epico" is planned for next year as a multi-week pop-up restaurant, while this year - and all following the situation and the NCB’s measures - we will organize several announcement evenings where Eros and Casa del Mare chefs will prepare the best Mediterranean recipes using local ingredients, cooking in special silver dishes known for their antibacterial properties and as guardians of authentic flavors.
Casa Epico is a combination of typical local tastes and fresh local ingredients with Mediterranean flavors using modern and best preparation techniques.
On August 14th, 15th and 16th, we prepare for you small joys and pure hedonism on the rooftop of our Casa del Mare Mediterraneo, which offers a view of the entire bay.
This summer will be just the beginning of a great story about people and heritage, our locals and its tradition, about the Mediterranean that lives in all of us and does not end anywhere. This is a story about us and our gastronomy, about wines and tastes, nature and herbs, about spices and secrets without which Casa del Mare would not be the same.
Eros' innovation and culinary magic, the passion and innovation of our chefs, the scent of the Mediterranean through every gang will make you forget for one night the challenges of today’s world, without the new normal being so unknown and foreign.
Some places take your breath away and make you travel for hours to get to them, and sometimes they are in your surroundings.

Casa Epico project
10 years back when we started our Casa del Mare story as well as now, creativity, ambition and striving to be better every day, are high on the list we never gave up.
Behind us are months full of challenges but also a period in which we learned from each other, believed in each other, exchanged ideas and concepts, with only one goal in mind, a stronger and brighter vision that will further enrich Casa del Mare hotels group.
Today we can talk about the first result of such a great effort and even greater faith, in days when due to the global pandemic of the Covid19 virus, to believe was harder than usual.
The name we are already proud of is Casa Epico - a project that speaks a completely different story about Casa del Mare and Montenegro.
Casa Epico brings to the Montenegrin part of the Adriatic a master of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, Michelin star chef Eros Picco, with whom we combine the best of our two brands as well as the Mediterranean Boka-way.
For the first time last summer we had the opportunity to present to all our guests a real Michelin-star culinary experience. This year together with Eros we are starting a years-long project of the popup restaurant Casa Epico.
As an introduction to everything that awaits us from next summer, we will realize this August several announcement evenings where Eros and Casa del Mare chefs will prepare the best Mediterranean recipes using local ingredients, cooking in special silver dishes known for their antibacterial properties and as guardians of authentic flavors.
Octopus under the bell- elegance, pleasure and flavor
Have you just found peace and balance among the white wings of our baldachin on Bocasa beach? And your focus on the blue clear sea in front of you and the turquoise sky above you. We want to admit something. Spontaneously and intentionally we distracted your attention with today's attraction. Catch of the day - THE OCTOPUS!
Fresh catch and what a catch of 13 pounds! Our local fishermen say they didn't found a bigger one in the Boka bay. We can guess if they were more proud of their catch or of its beauty. The harmonious spectrum of colors and its baroque forms. Our sparkle octopus amazed us and excited all our senses. The Chefs did the rest of the work. They created for us and our guests an atmosphere that we already call one of the best in this atypical summer. When you live nearby sea Octopus is traditional. There are different methods of preparation and today we decided to use one of the best. We used a bell, a large metal lid under which various delicacies can be baked. The bell is specific to the entire Balkans and probably this magical lid comes from the Middle East where a similar form was common for making bread. You can under the bell prepare meat, vegetables and pies in its own juice by placing live coals over it. Baking is balanced, the temperature is equable and different flavors merge in one and unique. Exactly the one that distracted you on the baldachin from the beginning of our story. We complemented today's pleasure with home-made potatoes, fresh vegetables and secret spices from our kitchen. We served local wine and enjoyed the coast as the young moonlight sneak smoothly.
Kotor bay- best kept secret of Europe
"They call Boka that magical bay into which the rocky and almost inaccessible hills of southern Herzegovina and Montenegro descend and sink. People who travel the world say this is one of the most beautiful positions in the country. And we would say that nature played here when at intervals created its own impressive art”- Stefan Mitrov Ljubiša
In-country where less is more we represent you adorable Boka Bay, the place where the clear, blue water meets mountains.
Boka is one love you can hardly avoid. It is one of the most beautiful bays in the world, a Montenegrin pearl that will take your breath away. Stay here, where the mountains plunged into the sea and made the most beautiful landscapes. Stay here, where the collision of two infinities gives birth to the remarkable deep of the Adriatic and the pride of mountain Lovćen.
If you indulge in cypresses, pines, old olive groves and fjords where Venetian galleys and sailing ships, as well as ships of world travelers and passengers, sailed in, you will understand why Boka has always been in the eye of the conquerors. The clash of two civilizations still lives here. On the place where the meditative spirit of the East intertwined with the charm of the Western world. The Gothic, the Renaissance and the Baroque shaped the cultural and historical life of Boka merging later into everything that the modern age brought. That authenticity and value last forever. From the southeast, the bay is watched by the massive Lovćen, while from the northwest, stretch the branches of Orjen, Radoštak and Dobroštica as tireless guardians of beauty.
